A full day awaits this weary chauffeur The clock beats a dull warning in my chest. Driving Ben to see School Superintendents Probation Officers. Parking Waiting for him to finish Masses and classes: four hours of GED two hours of Substance Abuse Eight hours gone seven years of lies. Clenching the wheel Struggling to silence reason's numb roar. Focus on the road. Life automatic. Another turn signal, a normal beat Almost home.
